CEO/ Founder Jon Taylor’s personal story that motivates and drives him to help those in need.

On December 20, 2022, Assistory Outreach Services hosted the Senior Assist Day event in the dining room of the Tanner Gardens Apartment Complex in South Phoenix, Arizona. Residents were treated to a delicious lunch served up by Kurt Riske, owner of Los Sombreros Mexican Restaurant, and received gift bags and there were also produce boxes provided by Diana Gregory of Gregory’s Fresh Market.

“My mother is about to become 81 years of age,” said Jon Taylor, CEO/ Founder of Assistory Outreach Services. ” She is about to move out of her apartment complex and she has a lot of anxiety. She is afraid of being alone.”

This was the motivation for hosting this Senior Assist Day event. Jon’s goal was to let the residents know that there are people out there who care about their well being. His compassion for those in need is what was the catalyst for him forming Assistory Outreach, a 501c organization based in the metropolitan Phoenix area.

According the the organization’s mission statement, Assistory Outreach Services is a nonprofit organization that advocates and serves the unsheltered population in Maricopa County. The organization provides food, clothing, financial assistance, job readiness training, housing assistance, also health & wellness provision.

TODAY IS NATIONAL GROUNDHOG DAY

Published

on

It’s February 2nd and this is the day that Mr./Ms. Groundhog may or may not see his shadow. If he does, could there there be six more weeks of winter?

#GroundhogDay

Groundhog Day (Pennsylvania GermanGrund’sau dåkGrundsaudaagGrundsow DawgMurmeltiertagNova ScotiaDaks Day) is a popular North American tradition observed in the United States and Canada on February 2. It derives from the Pennsylvania Dutch superstition that if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on this day and sees its shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den, and winter will go on for six more weeks; if it does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early.

While the tradition remains popular in the 21st century, studies have found no consistent association between a groundhog seeing its shadow and the subsequent arrival time of spring-like weather.

The weather lore was brought from German-speaking areas where the badger (German: Dachs) is the forecasting animal. This appears to be an enhanced version of the lore that clear weather on the Christian festival of Candlemas forebodes a prolonged winter.

The Groundhog Day ceremony held at Punxsutawney in western Pennsylvania, centering on a semi-mythical groundhog named Punxsutawney Phil, has become the most frequently attended ceremony. Grundsow Lodges in Pennsylvania Dutch Country in the southeastern part of the state observe the occasion as well. Other cities in the United States and Canada also have adopted the event. (wikipedia)

Splash Mountain at Disneyland is Closing… What’s next?

Published

on

As Splash Mountain closes, it will undergo a transformation into Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, a whimsical attraction inspired by The Princess and the Frog.

Splash Mountain is a log ride at Disneyland and Tokyo Disneyland. It was formerly located in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom before closing in January 2023. The ride is based on the animated sequences of the 1946 Disney film Song of the South. Although there are variations in the story and features between the two locations, each installation begins with a peaceful outdoor float-through that leads to indoor dark ride segments, with a climactic steep drop into a “briar patch” followed by an indoor finale. The drop is 52.5 feet.

In June 2020, it was announced that the U.S. versions of the ride would be receiving a new theme based on Disney‘s 2009 film The Princess and the Frog. The new ride, which will be titled Tiana’s Bayou Adventure, is scheduled to open at Disneyland and Magic Kingdom in late 2024. The Magic Kingdom version of Splash Mountain closed on January 23, 2023. The closing date for the Disneyland version has yet to be announced. (wikipedia)
